As a state committee begins trying to morph the pay structure for educators, the head of Delaware’s teachers’ union says there are issues that must be addressed to gain her support.

The Markell Administration has emphasized creation of optional teacher leadership positions. They would include a boost in pay to give educators a way to increase their salary without leaving the classroom to become an administrator.

Markell has mentioned the need to retain teachers who want to stay in the classroom in his past two State of the State Addresses.

A new task force created at the end of the General Assembly last month met for the first time Wednesday to address the issue.
